I mean maybe the altercation wasn't staged, but it's not like those 2 were furiously beating the shit out of each other like it was a real fight. They were obviously coasting until it was broken up. It's just so obviously to create buzz for the press and a failing show with awful ratings. It just seems so uncharacteristic of Dida to do that shit, man.
that's true, you could do it with only a few people. Didn't think of that. I'm choosing to believe wand is dumb and wanted to be all alpha, and forced chael's hand without either of them really wanting to get into a ferocious brawl.

It could've been staged though.

These guys actually fucking hate each other. This season of the Ultimate Fighter will be the best fucking season you've ever fucking watched. 6 doors will be broken and 1 guys from this season will be in the fucking UFC by 2015 so tune in to fucking see how much these guys hate each other. Fuck the fans. Buy UFC Fight Pass or go fuck yourself you cheap baby. I'll talk to you guys later. It's snowing at my house in Nevada because I fucking made it snow. Fighters are paid more than they deserve.

TUF Director: Chael, Wanderlei, here's the script, feel free to improvise a little, and if we don't like your improv work we edit it out. Since this is a show about fighting, try to include some of that. OK? Great.

Chael: Can I get some TRT before we start shooting this scene?

Silva: What about my 15 pieces of flair?

I bet some zuffa lovers will tell me I'm wrong and it's ok for the double standard in UFC's policy.
Thing is the UFC is desperate for ratings/fight pass numbers. The "fight" generated interest in the season. I don't think there has been much interest in any of the TUF nations. DW knows he can sell a fight between Wandy and Sonnen, I'm sure he is pissed that Wandy isn't signing the bout agreement.
